Coming Soon for Kids of All Ages...
At first you may not see them. Furry creatures howl in the woods, maybe near your house or down the lane from a friend's. Hairy ones swing through treetops in a far-off rain forest. Slinky ones wind around a drooping branch or slither across a warm rock. Peer into the leafy world of Don Saint Denis, and give heed to the poems of children from Wind Dance Farm. Look carefully. See if you can find where the wild things hide. Available in July 2014.
Illustrator Don Saint Denis lived most of his adult life in western Michigan where the creatures of forest, lake, and dune inspired his work. Employing a variety of mediums, he created a marvelous assortment of woodcarvings, sculptures, paintings, and drawings. He also imagined and illustrated a number of children’s books but never quite got around to writing the words for them. The children of Wind Dance Farm were happy to help with that.
Writers Maryam Keeley, Samantha Stewart, and Cleta Ullom are students in West Virginia at Wind Dance Farm & Earth Education Center, whose school year programs and summer camps supplement the curricula of home school and public school students.
